analyst brit hume. same thing that happened with nidal hasan in the fort hood shootings. the bureau got tipped that this guy was in contact with al awlaki. that he was a jihadist. didn't do anything. bang. this looks like the identical thing here. and you say? >> well, it looks similar. but we can't say based on what we now know that the fbi blew it in this particular case that we talked about you. no certainly the fbi knees to explain itself. hasan case led to a commission appointed by the director led by william webster which came down very hard on how that case was handled in the hasan case and said major mistakes were made and a lot was missed and me blew it whether they blew it this time is impossible to say yet. i think a lot of questions need to be answered about what exactly the russians and we now, i guess we know it was the russians who tipped us off. what exactly did they tell us? what exactly did the hasan -- did this guy say when he he was questioned? what was he asked? and when the fbi said, you know, they found no evidence, you know, how did he get out off the country and
there was boston there was major nidal malik hasan accused of killing 13 people at a terror attack in ft. hood in texas. it's one link in the chain of events leading to the assassination of a radical clerk and american sten named anwar al awlaki. war reporter jeremy scahill tells us what it means in the aftermath of boston. >>> but first, i want to share the three awesomest things on the internet beginning from kathleen elder, who points us to robert towell. the latest video dispatch from commander chris hadfield of the international space station. he enjoys informing the people of earth with these highly educational entertaining videos from how to stay fit in space which is difficult to how to cook spinach in space. his latest submission hadfield answers a question what happens when you dip a washcloth in water and try to wring it out. the answer is something truly bizarre and amazing. >> the water is all over my hands. in fact, it rings out of the cloth into my hands. if i let go of the cloth carefully, the water sort of sticks to my hands. >> as the news junkie put it, that was way more fas
? major hasan or the 32 survivors and the 14 deceased? >> we will take a look at this disturbing situation. scott scott caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> hello, i'm scott brown in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the joke is on us. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as you know, i was the united states senator from massachusetts for about three years. i speak with many of my former staff and colleagues on a regular basis and remain plugged in. so what if i told you that the leaders in both the house and the senate along with the vice president are actually close to solving our country's most vexing financial problems? things likes a astro no, ma'am mick cal gas prices, long lines at the airport and out-of-control national debt? that's not all. medicare, social security, and obama care will all be fixed and made self-sufficient for generations to come. if you are saying to yourselves wow, that seems too good to be true, you would be right. it's april fool's day and the april fool's joke is, guess what?
.s. radar in a major way was when nidal hasan shot up many of his fellow soldiers at ft. hood, texas, in that horrid massacre. and we learned that awlaki had been in e-mail contact with nidal hasan. the e-mails have been declassified and showed that hasan was like a stalker. he was asking awlaki to find him a wife. awlaki wasn't responding to him. awlaki is kind of ignoring him and say yeah, brother, if i find you a wife, i'll let you know. and then nidal hasan commits this heinous crime and kills all of these soldiers, and awlaki responds by printing a blog that says nidal hasan is a hero, and essentially calls on other soldiers, if they're muslim, to do the same thing that nidal hasan did. and that really was when most americans heard about anwar al awlaki. so he is added to the list. not only is he killed in a drone strike, his son and american citizen, abdul act man al awlaki is killed. there had been a other of discussion about was it a mistake. you have new reporting in the book about the reporting of the president when he finds out about the death. >> just to clarify, abdulrah
. >> what if nidal hasan was tweeting stuff out about the soldiers' families that he killed. would you be okay with that? >> she's not tweeting stuff out about families. >> would you be okay with anida hasan tweeting? >> i don't have to follow him. >> for the record, andy is not wearing pants. >> d.c. health board says smoking is a pre-existing condition. greg you said now you don't have to quit smoking because they removed the consequence. >> yes. >> because the main consequence has always been the higher insurance premiums. >> absolutely, my friend. >> bernie, kudos to you for supporting this, by the way. >> yes. equality, no more discrimination against smokers. tweet them the same way as fat people. it's the same thing. >> dana, the two states that said smoking isn't a pre-existing condition are colorado and alaska. >> no, i said the one that is. >> california. >> they all start with a c. >> protest over harvard inviting tyga to perform. bernie, you said everything you hear is audio pornography. >> i didn't say anything, i said a lot of it. by the way, i like it. i like jay-z, kanye
on a letter that was written to your office from our chairman, mr. wolf, with regard to major nidal hasan and the fort hood shootings. it was dated march 15, 2013. they have not received a response as of yet, i believe. so i wanted to delve into this a little bit if i could. specifically, i want to raise a line, a line from the letter that was from a former colleague of ours, mr. mccue, is now the secretary of the army, and he was interviewed in a "nightline" report sayingt dg purple hearts could adversely affectheriofr a soldier, so to declare a soldier of a fortress, we are told, i'm not an attorney and i don't run the justice department, but we were told that would have a profound effect on the ability to conduct the trial. so this is sort of the basis of where i want to go with my line of questioning. and issues revolve around workplace violence versus acts of terror, whether or not victims would receive a purple heart or not and why and how that might taint the trial of mr. assad and, of course, your role in this because he specifically implies, i believe, in his quote that the justi
. and the signal being sent, whether it's the military in the case of hasan or law enforcement in the case of the boston bombing is boy, you better be very, very careful about how you classify people. careful that you are so far on the side of caution that you neglect doing basic things. when the russian government tells us that this guy is a suspected terrorist, that should ring all kind of alarm bells. first of all, who would know better than the russian intelligence about the connection to chechnya and what's going on there? second, he was on the list. according to janet napolitano, he was on the list when he left for russia. he was taken off the list, but he wasn't on the list when he came back from russia. should his going to russia have put him further ahead on the list? where is rush -- he's not going to russia to go see the moscow symphony. he's going there to go to chechnya. that should have added to the probable cause, to the circumstantial evidence that would indicate that this man is a dangerous man rather than to -- >> sean: here is what we learned from the boston globe. russi
, how do they become radicalized in the united states. we've seen it with the case of major nadal hasan in ft. hood, texas. he had a complexion to that. obviously these guys on the internet, what they e-mailed with, what they were reading, what kind of thing they were downloading will be key to this question of motivation. finally, anderson, you know, what was the older brother doing in russia for six months last year. we've seen in the past, arazi, as american, naturalized in this country, a trip to pakistan is the point at which he became trained how to use baumz u bo-- bombs which he was planning to blow up in manhattan, those are the questions. >> we know a foreign government, we're assuming russia but haven't confirmed for sure, a foreign government did request an interview with him through the fbi. the fbi did conduct that interview. and jeff beatty, former counterterrorism official with the cia. you and i earlier had discussed the idea of -- of these devices and you said they must have practiced. >> exactly. as peter was indicating, you know, it's hard to get it right the first t
the alleged shooter major hasan. quote, this provision would be viewed as setting the stage for a formal declaration that major hasan is a terrorist. such a situation would fundamentally compromise the fairness and due process of the pending trial. >> that argument is total rubbish. >> neil share is an attorney for the victims and says it is absurd to think that high ranking officers who make up the jury will be swayed by an award and he argues hasan is a terrorist. >> as he was firing mercilessly on his victims, he was yelling, god is great. he was getting advice from al awlaki who was i believe in yemen. >> hasan corresponded with al qaeda leader awlaki a dozen times in the months leading up to the incident. but the pentagon will not call the shooting a terrorist attack. and there is the rub. because some would say, well look. just let the hasan trial finish and after it's done the pentagon would be free to award the purple heart. but what the pentagon is arguing is that this is not an international terrorist attack and that is the criteria to get the purple heart or even be eligible s

"it's something that did happen and that's why i guess i live my life everyday to be better than what i was." professor of education of psychology, roxana marachi, says cyberbullying is more difficult to track because it is anonymous... "cyber bullying often times just gets lost in the cracks and it's somewhat prevalent and so people say ' professor marachi says in order to prevent cyber bullying, people who see inappropriate behavior online need to step forward for the victims... i in san jose, tiffani tofani, update news." the words of dr martin luther king jr come to s-j-s-u for a momentous anniversary. the book is closing on a 55 year old s-j-s-u landmark. what does it mean to students? but first we ask students what they are going to

house is a in state of denial and has been that way since major hasan. this is created from the top, sense of political correctness that becomes very dangerous. the major hasan case should be studied in great detail and we should have learned lessons from it. major hasan was announcing his intentions for several years. people were complaining about him. instead of being dismissed from the military and possibly prosecuted he was promoted which indicated to me back then a kind of fear, even the military is into this politically correct thing where, my food l -- goodness we don't want to offend anybody. we have this terrorist who is told, we're told by the russian government that he's a jihadist, that he is a danger, that he is a problem. we go interview him. he tells us he isn't and we walk away and do nothing else about it as far as i can tell. then he goes to russia and we don't pick that up. gosh, here's a guy designated by a foreign government as a dangerous guy. we couldn't pick up why he was dangerous. and, then he goes to russia and, did we ever ask the russian government, did
to reclassify the major hasan case as a terrorist attack. it's strange and i think harmful in the effort of breaking through this political correctness so we can analyze this effectively, not to describe major hasan's attack, yelling, a la aqaba," after consulting with allawi, talking about jihad. the people killed there were killed as parent of this war, and that should be described as a terrorist attack. and studied from that point of view. maybe that would have helped a little bit in getting us further ahead if we had classified that correctly. >> schieffer: all right. well, thank you speech to both of you for bringing this perspective. and we'll be right back with a happy story. ♪ touching you sweet caroline ♪ ,,,,,,,,,,,, go a long way to find good news over this past week. but we did. we went all the way to china. earlier today, at the great hall of the people in beijing, american investor steve schwarzman, founder of the blackstone group, announced a $300 million scholarship program to be located on the campus of a university in beijing. he is donating $100 million of his own

. nidal hasan was thought to be a plant. known. not there was the safety deposit box held by nidal hasan. they waited so long in terms of making a decision. that box was empty by nidal hasan's brother. there was a bank account that his brother came in and emptied. was wired to an account in the west bank that went to hamas. this will not come out in the trial. this should of been named terrorism. i believe a political decision was made not to name it terrorism because they did not want to inflame the passions of muslim americans. host: mike in new york. caller: good morning. when wenew york city, the marathons', we have authorities out hours before the event and they have the canines going out looking for plants like this case somebody attempts to try something. i was wondering if anybody did that in boston? did anybody check for bombs with the dogs? i was wondering. i heard senator mccain say that torture does not work. said when he was tortured in vietnam that he was ashamed of all the stuff he gave up to the enemy. he felt bad about doing that. points.u got your u.s. law enforcement a
was interviewed saying quote, awarding purple hearts could adversely affect the trial of major hasan. toward a purple heart has to be done so to declare that a soldier a foreign terrorists, we are told i am not an attorney and a dove on the justice department, but we were told that would have a profound effect on the ability to conduct the rial. this is the basis of what i want to go with my line of questioning in the issues lvedround workplace violence persons acts of terror e, whether or not they things would receive a purple heart or not and why and how that might taint the trial of mr. hasan. in your role because he specifically implies in his quote at the justice department has a role in the overview of your budget request and how we move forward. i served at fort hood. my son was born i forget at 962,001 and am familiar with the up-tempo nature of the opposed. we had two divisions they are. can be a highly stressful environment and as a young captain eric two years back and so for me it's somewhat personal. i was also a judge advocate there. i prosecuted cases and another prosecutor. h
attacks in america since 9/11 were carried out by lone wolves. one was nidal hasan who killed 14 people at ft. hood, the other was carlos bledsoe in little rock, arkansas. both in 2009. walked into a army recruiting station and killed a recruiter just because he had a u.s. army uniform on. but we are doing a lot to deal with the lone wolf. the fbi which has developed an extraordinary domestic counterterrorism capability since 9/11 has various ways in which they look to apprehend, to catch, to be able to see a lone wolf before they strike. in the end, the best defense against a lone wolf always will be friends, family, people in the community who say something's wrong with this person, they're going bad. it is the old see something, say something, call the cops right away. >> senator joe lieberman, i got to leave it there. a man who's basically one of the founders of the homeland security department. always good to have your perspective on. >> good to be with you. >>> cities across the country on high alert this morning. we've seen it here in washington outside the white house, pennsylva
like nadal hasan, the shooter at the military base who killed so many of our troops at the time. so it is going to depend on motive, what they were to do. but by and large, the bottom line is that terrorism is a staining that people climb up on to make a statement. many times they feel disempowered or unable to make a statement. otherwise, whether it is for political, religious, personal, psychological reasons, these are all to be determined by the authorities. but as your other guest is suggesting, i, too, think if this guy wanted to be a suicide bomber, they could have easily accomplished it. instead they wanted to get away. watch their handy craft on tv and take some type of sadistic joy in what they were able to do. >> pick up on that point. is there a difference in mentality, goals, mindset between someone who does want to be a suicide bomber or doesn't plan for an escape, versus someone like this person or persons who seem to at least, have wanted to get away with it and escape. >> yeah. generally speaking, people who plan to attack and then get away with it are psychologicall
, chris, somebody in the states who like major nidal hasan at ft. hood receives their inspiration from the internet, from some, perhaps, islamic radicalized individuals. but we haven't seen americans build these type of devices, so we're starting to look internationally. the question is, as my good friend, larry, suggests, could it be just one lone wolf inspired by the internet? finding the formula to build these things on internet? or is it somebody who had some financial, if not some type of guidance from an international counterpart? >> so you're leaning toward the international possibility here. clint? >> yesterday i took it off the board. yesterday i was lone wolf, some timothy mcveigh type who built little pipe bombs. when i see these type of devices, if this is, in fact, the way they're described, to me it opens it up more for a potential either international or internationally inspired type of device. >> let's go to don clark, he's a special agent with the fbi. in the 1990s, the world trade center bombing, the first one. thank you for joining us, mr. clark. give us your sense o
was going to attack the military that major nadal hasan did. it would be easy for one person to do this. easier for two. no indication that it's a group whatsoever. >> why don't you think anybody's taken credit for this? what's the point if you're going to do this and not make a statement at some point that's obvious? >> for example the anthrax centers. the fbi believes the scientist who committed suicide that did that never said look what i did. we got these letters that went out, but no one person, no one organization took credit. sometimes for some people the best secret is knowing something that nobody else in the world does. you watch tv, you know you did that, but nobody else knows it. there are people who take joy in just that type of sadistic knowledge. >> can you tell domestic versus foreign? >> again, there's no indication of foreign involvement other than the type of device itself. this is something that would have been assembled probably near by components that you can buy in the local area. there is nothing to suggest a foreign national. however -- and i say however -- you
